Magento 2.0 was released on November 2015 and since then there had been speculations about when the support and the updates would stop for the 1.x series. Everyone guessed along with the Magento team at several events throughout 2017 confirmed that November 2018 will be the EOL for the Magento 1.x.

For a lot of merchants who have a highly stable or severely customized Magento, this was a concern. Although 2018 is the right time to start planning for an upgrade, many merchants were unable to conclude on it and were worried about the fact that they might soon have an unsupported platform.

Magento just made an announcement yesterday that cleared all the speculations. They have committed to provide security patches through June 2020 to ensure the 1.x versions remain secure and compliant.
